All three of New York's major airports are back in business now that LaGuardia is open again, with the first flight to the Twin Cities coming in at about noon on Thursday.
Just 24 hours ago, the runways at LaGuardia Airport were still under water.
"There were large pockets of water, but nothing like we were seeing on the news yesterday afternoon," Selina Blatz, of Shoreview, told FOX 9 News when she landed. "I mean, I think there was like three to four feet of water."
On Monday, 8,000 flights were canceled because of the storm, but travelers are starting to take off again.
LaGuardia was partially reopened at 7 a.m., but transit is still struggling in the city. One passenger told FOX 9 News that in order to get a ride for a 10 a.m. flight, they had to book a company's last cab at 5:45 a.m.
